November 2017 President's Message
By Steve Moore 2017 President
I would like to start off this month’s message by saying THANK YOU! to all of the first responders, firefighters, police officers, engineers, contractors, and volunteers who are still assisting those affected by the hurricanes and the much closer to home Napa fires. All of our thoughts and prayers go out to those who suffered losses of any kind.
I’m writing this month’s message just before lunch, so it’s easy for me to say, “I can’t wait for Thanksgiving!”. I’m already HUNGRY! I’m going to spare everyone from listing all the things I am looking forward to eating and instead concentrate on the real meaning behind Thanksgiving and what it means to the SCA.
First of all, THANK YOU to Jason Kettlehut and everyone that attended the annual Top Golf event on October 12! The weather, the food, the drink, and in particular the company was great! We had a wonderful evening due to Jason’s liberal distribution of drink tickets, Mathieu drilling golf balls into the far rear screen, Amaya’s double bounce shots over the edge, and Jim Krueger’s brutally consistent drives! Oh, and the venue was pretty spot on with their service and allowing our group to stay a little longer. Already looking forward to next year’s event!
With nothing but a board meeting planned for November, the SCA is really gearing up for December’s Charities luncheon at the Lions Gate Hotel. We will wrap up the year by donating SCA money to two worthy charities. We hope to have a representative from each organization at the luncheon to tell the Membership a little more about exactly what they do and how the money will be spent. We will also be conducting our annual Sacramento Food Bank canned food drive where anyone can bring non-perishable food items to the luncheon. We will also be conducting our annual Board of Directors Elections. If you are interested in running for a position on the Board of Directors, please complete an application available on our web site. This is a fantastic opportunity to get more involved with the SCA and help us to plan the future of our association!
My office door is always open, so if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to this holiday season and hope the best for everyone!
